The Czech Republic heavily relies on fossil fuels. Until now the government has not set a date to phase out coal. The central debate continues to revolve around the development of new nuclear capacity while RES are viewed critically. The country has already surpassed its renewable energy target for 2020; new targets remain weak and do not reflect recent technological and economic developments. The project aims to improve national climate policies and set the conditions for more ambitious goals.


Through a series of activities, the project wants to set a new tone on the renewable energy sources (RES) topic among the general public and local decision-makers in the Czech Republic. By emphasizing the potential of low carbon solutions and the limited use of fossil fuels, it wants to motivate Czech decision-makers to adopt higher shares of RES and, ultimately, to replace fossil fuels.

The project combines activities both on the political and public level. First, it targets the Czech government and politicians and promotes RES and modern energy solutions through studies and analysis. Second, it provides municipalities with good practices from community energy projects from different countries. Third, it presents inspirational examples of modern energy solutions for businesses and households to raise general awareness. By providing information about RES possibilities and their potential to the media, it wants to influence the general public.

A further goal is to build a platform for actors from Visegrad countries and Germany to deepen the exchange of information and best practice as well as to support cooperation in relevant fields.
